Everyone’s Favorite: Milk

Milk's Macaroon Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Milk’s Macaroon Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Milk is consistently suggested as one of the best ice-cream shops in LA.

My Favorite: Scoops


Me about to get ice-cream from my fav shop Scoops

My Second Favorite: Peddler’s Creamery

And you can too! Stop on in to take a spin and eat a scoop. Just like Scoops, Peddler’s has a wide range of unconventional flavors, albeit more consistent. Peddler’s also offers a large selection of vegan and non-diary ice-cream for everyone to enjoy.
